Why did you feel compelled to “do something” relative to your pre-existing IV compounding process?
There were many reasons why we felt compelled to push forward with automating our compounding process. First, we felt regulatory pressure from the State Board of Pharmacy, so we wanted to ensure accurate compounding processes were in place prior to any type of inspection. This was the main stimulus for getting us to purchase a product like PharmacyKeeper Verification. Also, reports from the patient safety organization came out and said that the “pull back” method was not a safe method or the gold standard of compounding verification. Being able to take the images of the preparation step and real-time documentation have helped assist us achieve this goal.
